Great Day in Delacroix on the skiff

We had a great day. Started off in Fenne bay, put a few trout in the boat. My wife caught her first bull red and black drum. Started heading further south down the pencil canal, when we found some moving water around a point (not sure of location). decided to stop there and try. caught 4 bass and about 50 trout. we then went to a cut off of bayou terrabone, where we found the reds stacked up. She then caught her 2nd bull red and I put a bull in the boat also. 4 more slot reds went into the boat and about 5 under slot. Cranked the 258DLV up and moved to another point about 1 mile away, where once again my wife pulled in yet another bull red. I caught about 15 more trout and few rats. we left there and went put some more bass in the boat about 5 mins from landing at Sweetwater to end the day. Not sure of all the locations due to my utility battery dying about 2 hours into trip, luckily Google maps works really well out there... I caught 90% of my keeper trout and all bass on a Midnight Mullet matrix shad with a 1/4 white jig 2' under a Cajun Thunder popping cork. Reds caught on Live shrimp 2' under popping cork.
